Hi Dahlia,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

In the medical world, there is actually no special prohibition for post-natal mothers to wash their hair. Washing your hair is actually good for keeping your body and hair clean. That way, various complaints, such as itching, dandruff, and unpleasant odors in the hair can be overcome.


However, after giving birth and while breastfeeding, hormonal changes in the mother's body can make the mother experience excessive hair loss. Therefore, special care is needed so that this condition can be minimized. We recommend that you do the following tips:

Wash every 2 to 3 days using an anti-fall shampoo
Shampoo using cold water while gently massaging the scalp
Avoid excessive stress and fatigue
Eat nutritious foods
Just drink 8-12 glasses per day

Certain beliefs may provide rules for postpartum mothers not to wash their hair for a while. If this is what you mean, then you should ask the experts directly, okay?


I hope this helps.
